Why every ACT question can only have one valid answer, no matter how much it might seem otherwise sometimes... How to look at ACT questions the same way ACT, Inc. does when it writes them... Why it's so important to work with real test questions from ACT, Inc....and why you shouldn't pay much attention to the official written explanations for those questions... What you're actually supposed to do when the ACT asks you about an author's attitude... The important implications of viewing time as an investment on test day... Why focusing on the wrong answers can be just as important as finding the right one...and how to do it effectively... The simple formula that allows you to crank out a top-scoring essay (that is, if you even need to take the ACT Writing test in the first place)... The special grammatical rules tested on the ACT English section-which may differ from what's commonly accepted in a high school or college classroom... The unwritten rules for every kind of ACT question... The many ways to approach an ACT Math question, and which ones are likely to work best for you... Why every real ACT Math question can potentially be answered in under 30 seconds... And much, much more than we can fit in this space...
